Custom Colt Pythons From Empire! — NRA 2024

Estimated reading time: 2 minutes

At NRAAM 2024, GunsAmerica stumbled upon a relatively new player in the firearms scene—Empire.

This innovative company is giving classic Colt Pythons a serious upgrade. They’re not just slapping on a new coat of paint; they’re adding custom rails, muzzle brakes, and unique grips to these iconic revolvers.

One standout model showcased was a completely brass version, which is not just a looker but also packs some serious heft.

According to True, who got hands-on with the brass beauty, it’s so heavy that firing a .357 hot load might feel more like a .22 due to the reduced recoil.

The added muzzle brake is a nice touch, practically eliminating kickback while boosting the gun’s aesthetic.

Empire isn’t just sticking to brass. They offer a sleek black model priced around $2,100, and the customization options don’t end there.

    IMHO, the Original Colt Python was and still is the design style all others are judged by.
    The Python is both beautiful as well as masculine, not sure why anyone would want to change or hide that.
    To each their own, I’ll take my Python just as it left the Colt factory.

    Take the most beautiful Revolver ever made and throw some gaudy colored picatiny garbage on it with some ugly grips and you have what? A gun that looks like a Barbie toy put together from legos. Who would like this? If you want a purpose built competition revolver, buy one. This is near sacrilege, like the Taylor 1873 Winchester clone in 9mm they show on another clip. I’m all for new technology, but the classics are better served as they were originally designed.
